Bill Cosby Makes Himself Available to Pitch for Red Sox, Worries About Getting Traded to Dodgers (Video)


Although he's a Philadelphia native, Bill Cosby adopted Massachusetts as his second home after attending UMass-Amherst in the 1970s while earning his master's degree.

The comedy icon spent last Saturday at Gillette Stadium, rooting on his alma mater in its first home football game as a Division I FBS school. Unfortunately, the Minutemen were beaten handily by Indiana, 45-6.

Cosby, along with Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, stopped by Red Sox First Pitch on Thursday night to declare himself available to Bobby Valentine for an inning or two.

Check out the video above with Tom Caron, Cosby and Werner to see all the fun.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
